My friend from Oklahoma and I went on the whale-watching cruise on 1/20/08 (sunday). The staff were kind and professional, and we had a wonderful trip. We did not see any whales, but we did run into a wonderfully playful group of "common dolphins" (i would say around 100) playing in the ocean. The captain turned the boat around so we could experience the dolphins to the fullest. it was delightful i would definitely recommend it to anyone! i will definitely take my family when they visit later this spring.

Well, that day's cruise didn't give us what we were expected: seeing any dolphins or whales. We did have a great time, after a whole week's hard work. Perhaps some kind of tracking, or surveilance from certain source, would be able to provide some kind of guidance. We enjoyed the cruise anyway. Keep up the good work!

The crew was great, as was the boat... but the whales... they didn't feel like cooperating... We only saw a few dolphins. That part was very cool, but we see dolphins from the shore allot so it was not that exciting. I guess the day we choose was just unlucky for us. Will definitely go back and try again...

The boat was OK, but some chairs or places to sit on the deck would have been nice. We tried to sit downstairs but could not see through the windows and could not hear the loudspeaker. We enjoyed seeing a few sea lions and a pod of dolphins, but really disappointed not to see a whale. We had read in the promotion that this was an especially good time to see blue whates, but when checked in, we were told they hadn't seen a whale in a week. Crew was courteous, and we didn't have any problems with the tour.

It would have been more fun to see a whale. But the playful dolphins made up for the disappointment of no whales.

There were lots of dolphins but no whales to be seen; we spent about an hour with the dolphins which lost the allure after about 15 minutes.
